The Songs of Eva Cassidy Featuring Silvie Paladino
Tuesday, May 4, 2021
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
KCAC21_SILVIE
The Songs of Eva Cassidy is a celebration of one of the great voices of the 20th Century, and who better to pay tribute to this genius, than Australia’s own Silvie Paladino.

Silvie is one of Australia’s most versatile and talented entertainers. She is a popular concert performer, recording artist and has starred in musicals such as Mamma Mia, Cats and Les Misérables in Australia and on London’s West End. She is also well known to Australian audiences as a regular on Carols by Candlelight.

Before Eva died at the tender age of 33, she was unknown outside of Washington USA, but within two years of her death, her albums topped the charts in the UK, Europe, Australia and the rest of the World.

The show features her inspired re-imaginings of such classic tunes as Over the Rainbow, Fields of Gold, Autumn Leaves, Time After Time, Ain’t No Sunshine, Bridge Over Troubled Water, What a Wonderful World and, of course, Songbird.

"Silvie Paladino has one of the greatest female voices in Australia." Arts Review

Increasing our awareness of what other people value allows us to develop clubs, services and groups that are responsive to everyone’s needs and ultimately increase participation and membership!

Learning outcomes include:

*Increase awareness of different cultures and communication practices
